I loved staying at the White Buffalo. It was so great to have a clean, nice place to stay with my family of four. The rooms were clean and the employees were accommodating and helpful. The buffet breakfast in the morning was a huge bonus with kids!! I loved not having to worry about food first thing. Also, the amazing...

We stayed at this place August 11-16, 2016. It was clean, quiet and the location was great. Breakfast was really good. The staff was wonderful. Our only complaint is....we should have stayed here last time we were in West Yellowstone! When we come back, this will be to this place! We would recommend this hotel to our friends or family....

Reviewed 22 August 2016

We stayed for one night as part of a road trip that went through Yellowstone. The White Buffalo is not a five star hotel, seems to cater to international tour groups as much as local tourists, but was overall a great stop for us. We would definitely stay again.

AC broke down and the guy came and looked at it, said he call the handy man. The handy man didn't even show up for 2 hours until we called twice, without answer, and then went down the the front desk. Greeted at the front desk with a very "no" attitude lady, wouldn't even acknowledge you and did not give...

As always, we appreciate people taking the time to review. I am wondering if there was a issue with a language barrier with the front desk employee. We have students From China who are working the front desk in the evenings. English is of course their second language. Having them here is not only a life changing experience for them,...

I would have given 5 stars how ever my only complaint would be they limit the free breakfast to two people. We had three in our party and the third was not covered. For what you pay for a room, you should at least get the number. In your party. Other than that a nice clean place.

RLB1954, Owner at White Buffalo Hotel, responded to this review

Thanks for your review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. The breakfast limit is tied directly to the "double occupancy" limit on the rooms. Although many people have more than two people in their room, we have not enforced the additional cost at that level, which would have been far more than the cost of the third breakfast....

San Francisco, California
Reviewed 27 July 2016

Very outdated facilities to start with. The shower's tempture is difficult to adjust. The walls and ceiling are poorly sound insulated. The clock and phone were broken. If you charge $200 per night, you'd better treat your customers well, especially those from overseas who bring money and jobs here.

I often wonder about exactly what a reviewer means. In this case the reference to outdated facilities is curious to me. The vast majority of the rooms have been completely remodeled. Only about 10 rooms do not have new carpet and 100% of the room have new artwork. I admit that we work to maintain a classic western US look,...

This hotel caters to an Asian tour company for yellowstone. Pool broken/drained & space for hut tub was a dirt patch. Room had a funny smell. We immediately made a new reservation somewhere else (I highly suggest the Days Inn if you have kids. 100 ft slide and double hot tubs w/ pool) When we went to front desk to...

This review is a great advertisement for a competing property. The hotel mentioned is owned by a great family and deserves consideration. Still, I wonder about reviews that highlight other local properties and their real purpose/intent. Yes, our hotel has many Asian visitors. We welcome people from all over the world and find that having many nationalities, races and religions...

We stayed here as a tour group visiting Yellowstone National Park. The place looked aged, requiring serious upgrades. For example, TV was still the cathode tube type from yesteryear. Faded colors and snowy screen. Unwatchable! The room did look clean and beds comfortable. However, we would not recommend this place for the following serious problems. First, coffee porches provided for...

We appreciate all reviews. While I'm sorry the guest did not like the color scheme. As for the need for "serious upgrades", I reject that opinion in that about 80% of the hotel has new carpet, new paint and new granite lavatory tops and sinks. All rooms have new artwork this year as well as bed linens. The majority of...
